Ukrainian military advancing in several areas, despite dense minefields, says Zelenskyy:
Ukrainian troops are advancing in several areas during the current counter-offensive, but are facing difficulties due to dense minefields, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said at a briefing on Aug. 23.
“We can observe it in several areas. We’re advancing,” President Zelenskyy said.
“It’s very difficult for us as there are lots of dense minefields. Thousands of mines are what Russia is leaving behind. The most important is the trends. The military reports the following trend to me: we’re constantly moving and advancing.”
The Armed Forces of Ukraine are advancing slowly, but the direction is correct, Zelenskyy added.
